After our oral history went live earlier in the week, Complex debuted some never before seen video clip from Coodie Simmons from the studio sessions during the recording of the "College Dropout."

The first clip features West performing "Never Let Me Down" for the first time to an audience that included Pharrell who makes his feelings about the record known quite prominently.

The second is a captured freestyle session between West and rapper Consequence (formerly of West's G.O.O.D Music label). You can watch the video below.
